The truth is, he could walk away. I've been homeless. I've been dependent on others. If he walks, I'll be fine...and he knows it. If he leaves I've got a plan in place. I know what I've got, what to get rid of, where to go and how to survive with just me and my kids. I've told him my plan and explained that it's not due to a lack of confidence in him. He understands and thinks more women should have a Plan B. He's glad to know that if I need to I can take care of myself and our kids. My plan was severely tested over the last 3 years as DH was un- or under-employeed. We survived!
Do you have a Plan B? If your SO or DH walked away could you physically and financially survive?
